New World Video was one of the many divisions of New World Pictures, by then no longer owned by B-movie legend Roger Corman. In January 1990, after parent company New World Entertainment filed for bankruptcy and purchased by investor Ronald Perelman, the video assets were sold to Trans Atlantic Entertainment, a company formed by New World's former co-chairmen.
